Pardon? What’s that? Oh, my new banner. Yes, it’s pretty neat, isn’t it? I mean, who doesn’t love a borzoi dog galloping towards a little house across a bright blue sky, not to mention your own book’s stunning cover art… and then, the best part — a red square boasting that your book is a Midwest Connections Pick. What it means is that my book was selected by independent booksellers in the midwest as a being a book that resonates with midwestern readers. It also means there are cool things on their website like this banner and other graphics, a Q & A with me, and eventually there’ll be a readers guide.
I’m honored to be picked, and happy that all of the bookstores where I’ve scheduled appearances are independent booksellers and members of that organization. I’m also glad that as a transplant (of 25 odd years, mind you), I’ve been picked as a midwesternly connected author. I think I’ll celebrate with some tater tot hot dish. 😉
